What we're about

Enjoy wine? Then you are on the right page! I'm Carol Brown, an Aberdeen based Member of the Association of Wine Educators and the Circle of Wine Writers and have been working professionally as a wine educator and writer for more than 20 years (yes I do think that I have the best job in the world!). I was invited to become organiser of this group in August 2016 and hope to spread the word about wine tastings and events in the Aberdeen area.

Through my business Wine Uncorked Education and Consultancy, I run Wine Education Service courses and workshops, the Aberdeen Wine Appreciators Tasting Group (est. 1999), host wine dinners and am an approved programme provider and tutor for the qualifications of Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET) all of which are open to all. I also arrange tailor made corporate and private wine events and would like to arrange Meet Up tastings as the group increases.

I'll let you know about tastings that I'm hosting as well as wine merchant tastings and other events that I hear about.

If you would like to arrange your own wine Meet Up, please let me know so that I can add it to the list.

So if you like wine or are stuck in a wine rut or perhaps know what you like and want to know more or are maybe a white wine drinker in search of a red to enjoy then come and join fellow tasters for informal, informative and fun events and discover the wonderful and ever changing world of wine!

Note on booking.....

As many of these events are open to the public and I won't always be personally overseeing the numbers/booking at the different venues,please follow the relevant link for each event to book your place/arrange tickets and have them confirmed by the provider before RSVP-ing here, thank you.

PS I don't sell wine :)

Aberdeen Wine Appreciators Meeting- 'Like this, try this..'

The informal Aberdeen Wine Appreciators tasting group meets regularly in Aberdeen and is hosted by wine educator and writer Carol Brown. The evening consists of a tutored tasting of 8 wines and a cheese platter is served. Taking inspiration from a selection of classic grapes, this tasting will lead you slightly (but not too far) from the well known to a grape path less travelled. Look at is as the opportunity to discover your new favourite wine! I usually have around 25 people attending and the evenings a suitable for all levels of wine knowledge. Informal, informative and fun!
